07/17/2017 - Factory Development Institute National Select Program Jalen is a coachable C/1B prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Factory Development Institute National Select Program. Behind the plate, Jalen works in a quiet stance and receives the ball with firm hands. He gets good strength behind his throws to 2B which allows them to carry through the bag. Jalen can improve as a C by moving to block balls in the dirt earlier. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He leads well with his lower half, producing fast bat speed which leads to decent pop to his pull side. Jalen can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. Wth two more years to develop, Jalen has the time and potential to further develop his game.
